GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Calvin Pickard logged 26 saves to earn his first shutout of the season and backstop the Grand Rapids Griffins to a 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Admirals on Wednesday at Van Andel Arena.

Behind a defense that was bolstered earlier today by the assignment of veteran defenseman Jonathan Ericsson from the Detroit Red Wings, Pickard secured his first shutout since Nov. 23, 2018 (PHI vs. NYR) and his first AHL whitewash since Jan. 20, 2018 (TOR at BNG).

As a result, the Griffins improved to 3-2-0-1 and kicked off their four-game homestand with their first home-ice win of the season.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
